salesman is paid a commission of 2% on goods sold worth over Ksh 100 000. He is also paid a monthly salary of Ksh 12 000. In a certain month, he sold 360 handbags at Ksh 500 each.
Calculate the salesman earnings that month

Total earned = salary + commission%
= 12000 + 2% (360 500 - 100000)
= 12000 + 2%(180000 - 100000)
= 12000 + 2% 80000
= 12000 + 1600

= Ksh 13600
The following month, the saleswoman monthly salary was increased by 10%. his total earnings that month were Ksh 17 600.
Calculate:
(i) the total amount of money received from the sales of handbags that month;
Increase salary
= 12000(1.1)
= Ksh 13200
= 17600 - 13200
= Ksh 4400
(ii) the number of handbags sold that month.
Total earned - salary = commission
= 17600 - 13200
= 4400
